A big finish...

Riley is a wonderful big sister to Tyson and Cooper. When she's not fighting over toys with Tyson they actually play really well together, making "tend" (pretend) food and building towers with Legos. Whenever Cooper is crying, she instantly breaks into "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" (with "little" sounding more like "litter"), in order to calm him down. When he actually stops crying while she's singing, she gets really excited and says, "I did it! I calmed Cooper down!" I have been trying to catch her singing on video for a while, but she usually clams up when the camera comes out... until today! I think she got the little "bow" she does at the end from "Little Einsteins"...



*A little side story to go along with this video... According to my mom, when I was about Riley's age, someone complimented me on my beautiful, thick, brown hair. My response: "I know!" It was at that moment that my mom realized she'd probably been complimenting me a little too much. I suppose I'm learning a similar message after filming this video today... :)

That video is precious! I love the self-compliment at the end. :-)

Makes me wish we had a video camera. Maddie's been singing lots of songs lately and it would be fun to capture it!

Oh, I LOVE IT!

Again, so much like my world. Natalie was singing her blessing at before dinner the other night, I grabbed the camera, and she became a ham, doing anything BUT singing the blessing. And our Twinkle Twinkle Wittle Star sounds so similar. Nat loves to sing along with Barney and Friends here http://www.barney.com/usa/jukebox.asp Twinkle Star is on the 3rd page. =)
